Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised...

A Work of Righteousness - 1997

Setting a Banquet

But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just. Luke 14: 13, 14

Water of Life Ministries was on national television and international short wave radio all over the world, five days a week.

Crusade Schedule Expands. We continued to conduct crusades in Tulsa, South Bend, Anaheim, and Houston. I traveled to Tulsa almost every month to confront the witchcraft in that city. In June God spoke to me, “You are not giving enough attention to my people in South Bend.” So we increased our travel there. We completed twenty-eight crusades; eleven to Tulsa, nine to South Bend and four each to Houston and Anaheim. A meal was provided at every one of them for all those that wanted to attend, paid for by the ministry.

When Thou Makest a Dinner. Along with the meals we provided at every crusade, we began hosting a dinner and meeting at the DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth) Marriott. We served a variety of menus such as Italian, Mexican and Barbecue. We continued these meetings until December.

In addition, in September we served a Barbecue dinner catered by Dickey’s Barbecue in McKinney, Texas at the Newsome Community Center. We continued serving a barbecue meal here every month through December.

Along with the barbecue meal we began delivering food once a week to the people in McKinney in conjunction with our regular mission.

Special Music
. One of our television programs was an hour of special music. Here is where Terry Mai recorded "Oh Come Let Us Sing Unto the Lord". We still use the recordings to this day. Later Terry and Kathy Mai recorded "Come Let Us Worship the King." I first heard this song in the Anaheim Marriott. The power of God was strong in that room.

Launching onto the Internet. We went off all radio except for our short wave station in December; our last broadcast was on the 28th. But like so many times before, God would end one thing and honor us with something better soon after. On Christmas Day we launched our Internet website with a page saying, “Under Construction” and included the following message, “Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!” We purchased a computer for this purpose, and began with the intention of posting transcripts of our television broadcasts on the web site.

In June we ended our ministering in the Dallas County Jails.

We continued distributing tapes free of charge. 40,800 tapes were given away this year.

The Mission allocated $65,400 of food for the year.
